Book - Fox Glacier, Franz Josef, Mt. Cook Scenic Flights

Fly the Southern Alps

An unforgettable scenic flight seeing adventure into the heart of the Southern Alps and around New Zealand's tallest mountain. Only from the air can you truly appreciate the immense scale and spectacular grandeur of this region. From Queenstown along the main divide to the Aoraki Mount Cook national park, your pilot will point out New Zealand's highest mountains, largest glaciers, vast snow fields, beautiful turquoise glacial lakes, intricate river systems, glacial formed valleys and towering above it all, at over 12,000ft, Aoraki-Mount Cook.

Include a Helicopter Glacier Landing

After landing at Mt. Cook Airport, Fox, or Franz Josef, board a helicopter for a 40 minute flight around the glaciers including a snow landing. West coast (Fox and Franz Josef) heliflights will depart from Fox or Franz, and fly over both glaciers, landing on one of them for a walk around in the glacial snow. East-side Mt. Cook helicopter flights will depart from Mt. Cook Airport and cover the Tasman Glacier, Hochstetter Icefall.
